The heat wave of Great Britain exposes historical secrets, including the fort of the Roman era

The historical secrets of the United Kingdom have been exposed to scorching temperatures, as the contours of the lost wonders of nations have sprung up in fields and hillsides across the country

The historical secrets of Britain have been exposed to scorching temperatures, as the outlines of the lost wonders of nations have sprung up in fields and hillsides across the country.

The traces of a first-century town, a "ghost garden" of the 1850s and a World War II airfield have appeared when the normally lush green landscape turns brown.

The parched earth is due to the longest heat wave in Britain since 1976 and the warmest June in the record.

The staff of National Trust Gawthorpe, Lancashire, was surprised to see clearly the outline of a garden that was installed in the 1850s, but retreated after World War II.

Photographer Mike Page was able to rise above the Norfolk field to take a photo of Caistor Roman Town, which was founded in 60 AD as the Roman predecessor of the modern city of Norwich.

The site, which resembles a varied collection of soccer fields, was first discovered by an RAF aircraft in July 1928 and is only visible in extremely hot summers.

The staff of National Trust Gawthorpe, Lancashire, meanwhile, was surprised to see clearly the outline of a garden that was installed in the 1850s, but retired after World War II.

The 'ghost garden', which was designed by Sir Charles Barry, the same man who outlined plans for the Houses of Parliament in Westminster, has been visible during particularly hot summers in the past.

However, the profile of the garden has never been seen so clearly, according to Rachael Tollitt, museum manager of Gawthorpe Hall.

She said: "There has been a real positive reaction from the locals who may not have thought about the garden before, and we have been very interested in people who want to get to know the garden in person and on social networks."

Ancient settlements such as the forts of the Iron Age hill (impression of the artist) are scattered throughout Wales. While collapsing and covering many centuries ago, long periods of dry weather can expose the area where they were built

WHAT CAUSES CULTIVATION BRANDING IN HOT TIME?

During the scorching heat waves of summer, the fuzzy contours of ancient structures appear in the fields of Britain.

These landscape scars are called cutting marks and often can only be seen from aerial images or field photographs.

They appear when the grass on the old stone or the wood still buried in the ground blooms or deteriorates at different rates to the surrounding plant life in unusually hot weather.

This creates contours that can help archaeologists determine the location of ancient settlements that would otherwise be hidden under centuries of farmland.

The crop marks are hard to see from the ground, but thanks to the recent increase in the technology of unmanned aircraft purchased in the store, they are now being captured where, otherwise, they would remain hidden for centuries.

Photographer Jordan Bridge, meanwhile, was able to rise above the Lasham Airfield in Hampshire to capture an incredible photo showing the outline of the site when it was much larger in World War II.

Mr. Bridge said: "My photos are unique, since they were captured from the air by a glider and, unlike other crop marks, they are in great detail, as they are from recent history.

"I am not an archaeologist or ground expert, just a professional glider pilot!"

The De Havilland Mosquitos took off from the airfield during the war and took part in the heroic air strikes of April 1944 when the 613 Squadron bombed the Gestapo Central Register of Records in The Hague, Holland.

The ditches dug by people of the Iron Age for the fortifications of the mountains have been gradually covered by farmers in recent centuries. But although they can no longer be easily seen from above, ditches still form deep patches of soil that can leave cut marks

Dr. Toby Driver, 48, an archaeologist and principal investigator of the Royal Commission for Ancient and Historic Monuments of Wales, said the aerial images they took of the exclaimed Welsh countryside on Friday even unearthed some previously unknown sites.

Dr Driver said: "There has been such an extreme drought that we have emerged sites of national importance."

The cut marks photographed at Langstone are one of the commission's new discoveries, which have been found in the same area as a previously discovered Roman fortification.

Dr. Driver said: "Now it's a race against the clock to discover the importance of this new discovery, those brands will probably only be there for another two and a half weeks or so."

Another Roman site not previously discovered near Magor, in south Wales, has been unearthed by the aerial images of the commission.

Other shots taken from Cessna Aircraft include the almost dry Nant-y-Moch site and the Gaer Fawr fortress, both in Ceredigion, Wales.

The strength of the hill, according to Dr Driver, has not been seen in 30 years.

The supply of water and nutrients in ancient ditches is better during periods of intense heat than in the shallow soil surrounding it, which means that the plants here grow and become greener. Pictured is the Roman fort of Penllwyn in Ceregigion, Wales
